Alzheimer Tele-Workshop offers information, support

The non-profit Alzheimer Society of BC will offer a free tele–workshop, How to Support a Friend Who Has Dementia or is a Caregiver, on Wednesday, April 23 at 2 p.m. The workshop is designed for friends and family of someone dealing with dementia, offering ideas for communicating with a person with dementia, for offering support and providing options on the kind of help the person, their caregiver or family might appreciate. The tele-workshop is not aimed at primary caregivers.

Connecting to the sessions is as easy as visiting momentum.adobeconnect.com/alzheimerbc (enter as a Guest) or phoning toll-free 1-866-994-7745, then entering pass code 1122333 when prompted.

Tele-workshops are learning sessions designed for family caregivers, but are also open to health-care providers. Recognizing that many caregivers are unable to attend in-person workshops, the sessions can be accessed via web or telephone. At the end of the tele-workshop, participants have an opportunity to ask questions and share with others who are in similar situations.
